Today I’m doing something new and super fun on the Strong. Confident. His. Podcast and Blog.
I’m starting a new theme called Girl Chat, and I couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off than with my bestie.
This girl is my go-to, my superhero cape, my BFF for 20 years.
Please welcome Kandace Hudspeth to Strong. Confident. His.
We’re going to cover 3 Ways To Stay STRONG: Mind, Body, & Soul when life gets overwhelming!
Because let’s be honest... it’s a struggle right now!
It's human nature to "press pause" or put ourselves last when our world gets stressful....the voice of the enemy tells us to "wait for the perfect time" when we know that the perfect time is right now.
Life doesn't pause and the good work we are called to complete doesn't pause either, so we hope this encourages you.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 tells us,
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.
And that is the mission today, friends!
3 Ways to Be STRONG When Life Gets Overwhelming
We need to speak out against our doubts, fears, and anxieties!
Pull the lies out of your mind just like you would a weed and replace them with God’s truth!
As Christians, we don't need to freak out or feed our fear and confusion.
When we are faced with things that steal our peace, we need to hold strong and go to our source of truth.
Romans 12:2 tells us...
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. ... Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in sisterly love.
We may not be able to go to church right now, but we are the church and with friends and family we can have church anywhere.
There is peace and power in fellowship and friendship.
I’ve noticed that people are on edge, have you?
We all need checks and balances to keep sure that we are responding with wisdom and love versus reacting to challenges we may be navigating...especially right now when there is so much temptation to "be right" we must remember that it is more important to love one another the way God has commanded us to.
Doing this will help us hold onto our peace and stay connected to each other in godly love.
Right now more than ever, girl, you need to take the very best care of yourself.
Are you practicing the 5 Ps, friend? If you’re tempted to eat for comfort, stress or numb yourself with food, this is a trap!
Don’t fall into it!
If you don’t know what the 5 P's are, download them, here.
Okay, time for an honest girl chat moment!
You may be thinking, how am I supposed to get my workouts in and take care of myself?
Adopt THIS approach:
Tell yourself, it's not all or nothing, it's always something.
Picture your workouts on a dial, somedays are a perfect ten, and some days can only be a two.
The point is you can always do something.
Consider the law of averages and do the best you can with what you have knowing that if you bring all you have to your day, God will bless it!
Have you felt the heaviness, have you felt under attack?
Praying the word of God is the truest and most powerful strength training!
Pray! And then pray again, believing!
We need to believe with boldness in our prayers sister/friends!
The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. – James 5:16
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. – Mark 11:24
When we cry our to God, He hears us.
I teach a tool called the F.I.T. Power Hour in my book, 10 Steps to Your Faith Inspired Transformation, F.I.T. to help stay STRONG: Mind, Body, & Soul!
Our Prayer For You!
Help lift the heaviness of the world from our hearts. In you, we can live strong and confident in our mind, body, and soul. Your word says, Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. We don’t want anyone to feel alone or hopeless. We want our sisters to feel reset and full of faith and inspiration with You..in this moment!
Lord, help us navigate this time through you and for you, and grow deeper in Christ together.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
Proverbs 27:17 tells us, As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
Let’s stay STRONG together!
